These VR experiences will be built on Verizon’s 5G proficiencies as well as Dreamscape’s Avatar Driven Educational and Practical Training (ADEPT) platform. ADEPT will help to deliver realistic VR setups utilizing Dreamscape Learn’s Proprietary rendering and tracking technologies. This dedicated VR platform will allow combining Hollywood-style storytelling with full-body tracking to yield an unprecedented level of interaction and precision in achieving the desired immersive experience.

Dreamscape Learn hopes to deliver on its promise by relying on the high bandwidth, ultra-low latency, and faster speed of Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband (available in select locations) and 5G Edge platform. The partnership is expected to develop low-lag VR applications that would unleash the power of remote networking, connectivity, and virtual collaboration.
